For me, February is going to be filled with fuchsia nail polish. Towards the end of January, that was all I was looking for. Can you believe that I had no fuchsia colors in my collection? I think I fell out of love with fuchsias and berry tones for quite a while. The situation was remedied by a trip to Ulta. The two colors I pulled off the nail polish racks were: OPI Koala Bear-y and OPI You're a Pisa work. I was tickled pink with the names! In this post I'll show my review and swatches of these two colors.
Both OPI Koala Bear-y and OPI You're a Pisa work are fuchsia cremes. They look quite similar in the bottle too, as you can see. OPI Koala Bear-y is a slightly cooler and more berry toned. OPI You're a Pisa work is closer to pink. You can see from my swatch below that it seems ever so slightly warmer than Koala Bear-y. However, these differences are minute and in certain lights I can't tell the difference! Both have opaque formulas. One coat can be enough if I'm feeling impatient. Normally I still do two coats for good measure. The formula of OPI Koala Bear-y was amazing. It's what OPIs are supposed to be like. It spreads well and levels well. OPI You're a Pisa work was good, but not as stellar as its counterpart. The formula was a little thicker and drags a little more. However, it is just a minor issue.
Can you tell which is which?
